ARRI ARRIMAX 18/12 HMI Kit with Ballast for productions require a massive amount of light. The kit includes an ARRIMAX 8/12kW HMI PAR lamp head with 4-way barndoors, a 50′ head-to-ballast cable, and an EB MAX 12/18 ballast. Separate purchase of a 12 or 18kW HMI lamp is required for use.
The design of the Arrimax 18/12Kw HMI PAR fixture provides an optimum choice for productions requiring maximum light output. Combining the variable beam spread of a Fresnel and the light output of a PAR, the Arrimax uses a unique reflector concept for beam control which eliminates the need for spread lenses.
The optical system with its 580mm (22.8″) diameter specular, flatted reflector is adjustable and provides continuous focus from 15 – 50°. Because the Arrimax does not require a set of spread lenses, the shadow quality is sharper and easily cut.
Although exact specifications are not available, this fixture will provide well over 3,000 footcandles from a distance of 100′, when fitted with a 12,000 watt HMI lamp.
